Theresa May has a very obvious plan for dealing with Donald Trump. Namely to bend over backwards for him. And also to bend further when he takes advantage of this. Which is:
The problem for May is the bending has finally gone too far.

At a meeting earlier today, the president was seen resting his drinks on May’s stomach while shouting to Boris Johnson:
Hey Barry [sic], is she still your boss? Seriously? We call her ‘Mable’ at the White House! It’s like a cross between May and table! We have a lot of great goofs like that! You should come over and play some time!

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
